Well BASHing together an IRC bot out of netcat and quick-and-dirty 
oneliners of sed and awk are easy for me, because I'm used to it.

Anything beyond a quick one-liner of Perl looks daunting to me.

I dislike using standard libraries. To me, it's learning how to use 
other people's code. Reinventing the wheel my butt.
